India This picture of my father, Bill Belton, (William Arthur Belton) was taken in India at the mountain hospital where he was convalescing at the end of the war. Dad is at the front of the picture, smiling. All four lads are wearing their RAF forage caps.^

Edith Davies Williams


Edith looks quite young in this picture, which was probably taken before she married Arthur Belton. I added the frame and the background as the picture was originally unframed in an album.

I think that Edith would have liked the choice of ornate frame as she always wore jewellery - from what I remember of the small cottage on Wesley Road, it was often quite dark and dismal so perhaps her fondness for jewellery was a bit of escapism? She had, after all, been in service in Southport and Ireland (possibly other places, too) before marrying.


A studio portrait of Edith Williams who married Arthur Belton. I don't know when this picture was taken or whether Edith was married at the time, but she looks quite young.^
